Evening Gown - Post Apocalyptic Bar-B-Que (EP) Review
First off, let me say that this is not my type of music. I don't listen to it; in fact before this album I had never listened to an entire noise album. That said, I'll still make an attempt at judging what I'm unfamiliar with. Nice to keep things fresh. Anyway, from a traditional music perspective this way unrecognizable. There may have been changes to the noise in the first song, but I'm not sure (I think it was looping the same thing for most of the song.) in the first song there was no melody, no noticeable changes, no vocals, and I must admit that this was my least favorite track of the album. While I didn't mind the first two minutes or so of it, it didn't need to last over eight minutes. That's one of the things I liked about the songs that came after. They were short, concise, and brought out some actual thoughts in my head. While I listened I thought of what this "noise" could be, and into my head popped images of screaming insects, electronic jack hammers, aliens, and an fm radio being tuned. Not at all what I'm used to in looking for in music, but still, an interesting listen. For me, it's the differences in it that kept me interested throughout.
While not at all what I prefer nor normally listen to, I must admit it was not a bad album. My only complaints would be the length of the first song, which sounded basically the same throughout all of its near nine minutes, extremely high frequencies (something I'm not used to,) and the random blasts of sound that hurt to hear because they were so loud and unexpected. Still, not much of a downside. If you're looking for something different and new, check out this album. It's worth my second listen, so it's worth your first. Enjoy the music.
